THE Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir is looking to build upon a very successful 2013 with some ambitious goals and an international tour.

Last year saw the 15th anniversary of the group that first premiered at a Brisbane Pride Fair Day in 1998 and choir president David Hardy believes they can double their membership in 2014.

This year will see the choir focus on same-sex marriage, as the choir has always been a believer of LGBTI rights, according to Hardy.

“We are a non-auditioned choir, open to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, queer and our straight allies,” Hardy said.

“It’s a great group to make friends, to sing together and to perform.”

New members can join the choir from February 4 at its new meeting venue, the New Farm Library.

The group have tours planned for 2014, including an Australian/Irish concert in May and a Queensland Pride Concert in September. The choir will also tour Ireland and the UK in June as a part of the Various Voices choral festival.
